Two teens have been arrested, accused of beating a 13-year-old Chinese national to death

SINGAPORE - A Secondary 1 student was found dead yesterday in an alley in Geylang, and two 16-year-olds were arrested for voluntarily causing grievous hurt. The 13-year-old boy, Zhang Zekai, is believed to have died after he was assaulted by two youths in the alley between Lorong 29 and 31. The victim was a Chinese national studying here. He had been listed as missing for 22 days. The youths had confronted Zekai in an online gaming shop and accused him of stealing their money. They took him to the alley and allegedly beat him. One of the suspects was understood to have called for an ambulance while the shopowner called the police. A police spokesman told TODAY that at about 3.17am, they had received a call about a fight that had occurred at a back lane between Lorong 29 and 31 Geylang. The boy was pronounced dead at the scene at 3.48am. Police are investigating.
